one more question… is the garbo shair closed on weekdays? Can you take the gondola up to the garbo zone? if so is it pretty easy to find your way?
thanks

yeah, you take the gondy to the top, then go mach 25 down for like a min, watch for water bars, they are nasty. You will miss the first part of OS or Freight train, unless you want to climb up to the top of Garbo chair.

Is there a Vancouver in Taiwan?! I had no idea!!

Nothing sums up my life's achievements like my stuffed corpse, suplexing a cougar.

Gondy is closed for the rest of the season, Garbo is open til the end. I was hanging out by guest relations and the ticket booth yesterday, sooo many people getting turned away from sightseeing, "What? Its Closed? Only weekends? I'm only here til Friday? WTF?" People need to do some research before booking their vacations. Kinda wierd its closed before the Bike Park closes…..

Sit down, gimpy!

I learned the hard way to towel off my bike before the dog. I'd rather have a slightly oily dog than a hairy bike.

Beautiful west coast, ocean inspired pottery.

Sidetrack's getting nice and worked in…but there's that one drop to flatish landing that's getting pretty concret-eish now. It's not as smooth as it used to be!

Seand…I saw someone on a nice blue VPX today (friday) was that you?

Yup, Sean was up there. I saw him getting on the lift on my second run, but didn't get a chance to shout out, then didn't see him for the rest of the day.

Sidetrack is definitely sweet.

Nope, but I was on a blue 6.6 :)

Dave, you should have screamed at me :)

Sidetrack is definitely a trail you want to keep your flow and speed on. After the fall away and step-up on freight train, you don't wanna stop so you can get some good distance on the first drop on sidetrack.

What a trail! The whole trail has potential for being beyond awesome once some of the berms get bricked in and all the jumps get fully worked in. I still prefer freight train from that part down, but once ST gets some love and whatnot, it will be a tough choice. Right now, i can do without the area it dumps you into (not a fan of that part of duffman/golden triangle) but atleast you can head down to a-line from there which is a nice way to keep the sidetrack groove going.

Friday was an amazing day..Sat was good too but far more busy.
